Working on it


     This is my really good friend, Jennifer.  She came over today to read these crazy letters and help me sort them out.  What you can't see very well, is that some of the letters are 20+ pages long.  Those letters are the most free-associating, schizophrenic, vulgar, mean letters... it's just hard to describe. 
     I have really considered trying to turn this story into a book.  But, after reading some parts to Paul, he informed me that there was no way I could ever associate myself with this stuff.  He said, "Maybe you could write it under a ghost name like, April Pisaacs."  To which I laughed for at least 20 minutes.  Actually, it makes me laugh every time I think about it.  It's really not that funny, I know.
     During our conversation about this, I also told him that sometimes I wonder if maybe Audrey was the crazy one because sometimes, sometimes Barbara sounds really intelligent. That's when he told me he didn't know who was crazier, Audrey, Barbara or me.  
     He hasn't read all the letters... so there.
     Anyway, I am working on sharing a letter with all of you- piecing several together while still trying to keep my testimony in tact.  It's not an easy feat to undertake.  Come back tomorrow.

I'm waiting! I am so excited to see what happens next. Perhaps you could write the book...but just leave out the details that are bad...I mean so far this has been one mean story...you've got us all on pins and needles!

I feel for you April.... to make sense out of that craziness is going to be ALOT!! I'm having trouble getting some of the images out of my head (:
You can do it though, and it'll be great! If it all turns into a motion picture, I wonder who could play the role of Barbara.....
